1 Faith is Wow! By Ray Ritchie..... on Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:20 am



As I’ve grown older; I still find that I must have a faith that navigates me through life. I’ve learned the lesson that just about the dust settles from the last path of trial and temptation that enviably another is just beginning its assault against me. Therefore my faith must be preemptive concerning life here in this dispensation of reality. Faith is a fact but is an act; there are a great crowd of witnesses which prevailed by and through their faith in God. The tactics and strategies of the devil have not change over the years; they just take on new faces with each succeeding generation. If our eye is upon Jesus and hands are upon the plow we will breakup ground and sow gospel seed all the way to heaven. Brethren keep on believing, keep on trusting, and keep hanging on because the enemy means to rob you of the faith that you hold. If you allow him; he will surely replace it with fear and woe.

(22) And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
(23) For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
(24) Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
(25) And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
(26) But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. Mark 11:22-26 KJV

Brethren, I’ve learned that one must keep on believing in spite of everything that looks or speaks to the contrary. If God said it that settles it for me; but then here comes the devil and his minions to upset and try to overthrow everything that I know in my spirit I have a promise to possess. This is when faith is tested to the brink of my ability; when I am feeling in my emotions I am in dire straits and the devils keep whispering doubt and doom in my spiritual ear. This is the opportunity for my faith to affirm or fail me according to what I choose to believe. The above scripture tells us to have faith in God; if my faith is in faith alone then I am doomed; but if my faith is in God and it is his power upon which I depend; then surely I can believe with all my heart that which I am trusting God to bring to pass.

God has given each of us a portion of faith, it is an impartation of himself and then we add to that faith through trusting and obeying him in word and in deed. The Holy Spirit is the power that works in the inner man, and excellency of the power is of God and not of us. Therefore; we must activate that faith in every situation and circumstance and the power of God to keep us will sustain us in peace until the manifestation of those things we are waiting upon come to pass.

Brethren keep the faith today and the faith will keep you. Do not look to the left or to the right, but keep your eye upon the prize. Fear not for the Lord thy God is mighty to save, heal, and deliver. Selah

Shalom, Agape, & Amen!
D. Ray Ritchie (Man of Faith)
